The Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, sarcastically commented, “Somebody in a film sings a song and you have no other job but to file a case.” The Malayalam actress, Priya Prakash Varrier, is relieved as the Supreme Court quashed all the FIRs lodged against her over a song in her upcoming movie and also declared that there will be no further FIR against Priya Varrier.
P. Varrier, who became a sensation after her wink in the song, was accused by a resident of Hyderabad at the Falaknuma Police Station in Hyderabad. The complainant said, “The 30-second clip shows a schoolgirl and schoolboy exchanging smiles, eyebrows wiggles and winks from across the way.” He defended his argument saying winking is forbidden in Islam. He also added that the act of winking is superimposed with a sacred song, written in the praise of Prophet Mohammed and his first wife, making it an act of blasphemy.”
The complainant made pointless arguments saying the picturization of the sacred song with a wink hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community. He expressed anger by calling it is a deliberate attempt to ruin the image of Islam.
The bench of judges comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice D. Y. Chandrachud and Justice A.M. Khanwilkar dismissed the case and said, “It’s just a song.”
